Description

Application

It is used in construction and reconstruction of buildings to improve acoustic insulation of single-layer building constructions: gypsum, brick and concrete walls, partitions and armored concrete ceiling slabs. It is mostly used in living accommodations: flats and cottages.

Composition

Panel sound insulating system ZIPS-III-Ultra consists of sandwich-panels 42.5 mm thick and special finishing gypsum plasterboards AKU-line 12.5 mm thick. A sandwich-panel of Ultra type is a combination of a GFB layer and glass-fiber board. Eight special vibration insulators made of Sylomer are used in the structure of the panel for support on a wall or a slab. In a free state these supports protrude above the sandwich-panel surface by more than 10 mm, but while installation they are being pressed and total thickness of the system together with finishing gypsum plasterboard layer equals 55 mm. Every sandwich-panel consists of eight vibration-insulating fastening units by which it is being erected on walls or ceiling slabs.

Technology of Installation

Panel system ZIPS-III-Ultra need to be installed in strict accordance with the installation guide.

Installation

1. Surface preparation and installation

ZIPS Panel system is mounted on existing walls, made of concrete blocks or bricks, monolithic reinforced concrete column and slabs. It is not recommended to mount a panel system for the construction of a thickness of less than 80 mm. Before the commencement of installation, the surface of walls and ceiling shall be leveled plaster mixture. Allowed irregularities and deviations of not more than 10 mm per linear meter of the surface.

1. Surface preparation and installation

2.Beginning instalation

By the side walls and the ceiling, the ends of the sandwich panels should be placed through two layers of anti-vibration tape «Vibrostek-M». The ribbon is glued and fixed with sealant «Vibrosil». On the floor panel system is based through two layers of anti-vibration tape «Vibrostek-M». Strip «Vibrostek- M» also must be placed under the ends of gypsum and gypsum fiber boards, applied in the system. If the panel system is mounted on the ceiling, all adjacency to the side surfaces of the vibration-insulating tape “Vibrostek-M” in 2 layers.

2. Beginning instalation

3. Installation of sandwich panels

Each sandwich panel has 8 vibroisolating joints for its fastening to the surface. The panels must be mounted strictly through vibroisolating joints. Installation of sandwich panels it is easier to engage from the bottom up, from left to right. In the first panel, the ridges are cut short and the long side, following panlay the first row only on the long side. The panel set as follows: the panel is applied to the wall, directly through vibroisolating joints drill the holes in the ceiling/wall depth of 60 mm.Insert the screws with whasher slightly attached to the plastic duwel (do not let the duwel to expand) into the hole. After the dowel is inserted in the drilled hole, hammer it until it stops and tighten placed under his head conical washer.

ATTENTION! The screw head has to be recessed into the surface of attachment joint no more than 1-2 mm!

4. Trim panels

Sandwich panels are joined together by means of a tongueand- groove connection, tongue-and-groove joints are additionally tightening the screws for gypsum-fiber Board 3x25mm, pitch of screws 150 mm. When the closure of a number of the panel can be pruned, wherein the trimmed portion goes to the next row. Cut out sandwich panels using a jigsaw, a layer of mineral wool is trimmed with a sharp knife.

5. Spacing of the conjunctions

ZIPS Panel system is mounted on existing walls, made of concrete blocks or bricks, monolithic reinforced concrete column and slabs. It is not recommended to mount a panel system for the construction of a thickness of less than 80 mm. Before the commencement of installation, the surface of walls and ceiling shall be leveled plaster mixture. Allowed irregularities and deviations of not more than 10 mm per linear meter of the surface.

6. Fastening elements usage

If the sandwich panel is completely placed on the surface of the wall – its installation is carried out only with the help of six vibroisolating joints (Central nodes are not used). If the wall panel is subject to pruning – using all the available mounts. When mounting the panels on the ceiling use in two central vibroisolating joints with metal anchor screws. Mount ZIPSCinema panel to the wall similarly. There are two types of anchor screws coming for installation of sandwich panels on the ceiling: standard (50 mm longer than the thickness of the sandwich panel) and shortened. Shortened anchor screws are used for installation on hollow core of floor slabs.

7. Finishing layer of AKU-line sheets

The joints between sandwich panels should be treated with a sealant «Vibrosil» after installation. Lean finish layer of gypsum Board (12,5 mm thickness) to the resulting surface. The gypsum Boards should adjoin to adjacent surfaces through the double layer of vibration-insulating tape «Vibrostek-M» in accordance with point 2 of this manual. When installing gypsum boards use self-tapping screws 3,9 х 41 mm. Screws should not hit the vibrojoints of sandwich panels. The distance between screws has to be 200 mm vertically and 400 mm horizontally.

8. The final stage

The excess of protruding tape «Vibrostek-M» is cut flush with the finish layer of gypsum Board. Joints filled acoustic silicone sealant «Vibrosil». To obtain a perfect weld, it is recommended to use masking tape, which is pasted on the surface, forming an angle. If necessary, the surface panel systems are additionally aligned for final finish.
